OHMMS frontman PAUL WALLER deals his lot on doom, tarot cards and conspiracy theories with TERRORIZER

Strange things are happening in camp OHHMS at the moment.

“Our new single was played on Radio One the day [my friend] found out he was sacked,” sighs frontman Paul Waller. “‘The World’ is about my friend at work who is overcome with conspiracy theories. I asked for permission to write this song about him, and he thinks it’s great. He sees it as me spreading his word about aliens and the earth being flat. But his conspiracy beliefs got so bad for him over the last six months he had to go to a psychiatrist, he was deemed unfit to work. He can’t function within reality anymore. He’s been a really good friend but over the last few months I’ve just seen someone break down in front of my eyes. I don’t believe in conspiracy theories myself, but I wanted to write about this guy because I’ve never known anyone to be completely taken over by conspiracy theories in this way.”

About Terrorizer Magazine

Sitting here wrapping up this brand new issue of Terrorizer, I find myself realising how many ‘old’ bands or new bands with ‘old’ members have been on the cover over recent issues. I have come to the conclusion that it’s not because new bands are shit (just check out our Choice Cuts section for proof), it’s just that some of the old guard are still producing belting new albums and deserve the recognition. Obituary are no exception to this rule. It’s been around 26 years since I first set my eyes and ears on the death metal pioneers and they’ve always stayed close to my heart – hell, I still have my old personal bootleg of them playing Wrexham Memorial Hall at the start of the ’90s. They’ve had a few career wobbles since then, but their new self-titled album is testament to a band that can still deliver the goods and haven’t churned out formulaic rubbish. I hope you enjoy reading about the album’s creation and what being in Obituary means to all involved. Elsewhere there’s a heap of exciting new bands and projects covered including Venom Prison, Vodun, and the earth shatteringly ace OHHMS – all fucking incredible new bands. And then of course, we have some favourites who are back with new albums, so we hope you enjoy reading this all-encompassing issue. See you next month! Darren Sadler
